I thoroughly enjoy having cats for pets and have often wondered what the Bible says regarding that. So, I did some research. Here goes…
Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.” Matthew 10:29, New Living Translation God is aware of all of His creation, all of the time. With that thought in mind shouldn’t we be also?
“O Lord, You preserve both man and beast.” Psalm 36:6 So, let’s think about this. If God preserves (cares for) man and animal then we should be doing the same.
“A righteous man regards the life of his animal.” Proverbs 12:10 Righteousness is making right choices. The word regards reflects the idea of caring for animals in the best way possible.
There has been a great deal of research about how cats affect their humans.
Need to work something out? Talk to your cat. It doesn’t respond and when it looks at you with those beautiful eyes you know you’re the most important human ever.
Dealing with stress and anxiety? That awesome ball of purring fur will eliminate stress faster than any pill.
Are you a high risk for cardiovascular disease? A recent study found a high significant statistical probability that those who own cats have less chance of death due to stroke or heart attack. One study found that over a 10-year period cat owners were 30 percent less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke
Do you love books and have a college degree? Thank your cat. According to Dr. Denise Guastello cat owners are introverted, open-minded, non-conformists, and score high on intelligence tests.
Do you sleep with your cat? Researchers at the Mayo Clinic discovered that 41% of those who sleep with their cat report sleeping better.
